Dear chairs,

This is a Semi-annual reminder of the upcoming change due to Daylight 
Saving Time (DST).

Most of the US and Canada will be moving their clocks forward on Sunday, 
10 March. This is three weeks earlier than Europe. Most European clocks 
will move 1 hour forward on Sunday, 31 March. Between 10 March and 31 
March, the teleconferences that are scheduled according to the US clock 
will start *one hour earlier* in local time for most Europeans.

China, Japan and Russia do not observe DST, which means the time 
difference between these areas and US/Europe will be one hour less than 
it currently is.

For locations that observe DST in Australia and New Zealand, their 
clocks will shift back on Sunday, 7 April.

Please share this information with your groups, as it will have an 
impact on teleconferences. If you are unsure about the scheduled time of 
any teleconference, please confirm the time arrangements with your 
meeting host.

The meeting planner tool below may be helpful to find the time for your 
web meeting across time zones:

Best Regards,
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
